Notes: Negra Modelo, better known as "the cream of the beer", is a Munich-type beer with 5.3º of alcohol that offers a balanced flavor and a delicate aroma of dark malt, caramel and hops.

Today it occupies the first place in sales among dark beers in Mexico. This beer is accompanied by a bright deep amber color, which is adorned with abundant, white and compact foam.

Negra Modelo was introduced in Mexico in 1925 as the dark beer called Modelo, to begin its great tradition. In 2014 it changed its image to a more sophisticated bottle but with the same content.

Ingredients - Water, barley malt, non-malted cereals, hops

Straight 3/5 across the board. I would definitely buy it again, but it's nothing special or impressive. Decent overall beer.

It reminds me exactly of a better version of Michelob™ Dark, and I'm talkin the 'Don't be afraid of the dark' era with Martin Mull, circa 1987 - 1992. It's a very drinkable, not heavy dark beer. Very malt forward, so there's no confusing this for an IPA! But with this beer, that's a good thing!

It tastes okay. Its not a heavy taste but its not a light taste either. I'm not much of an alcohol drinker so two is enough for me and it makes me feel mellow/ relaxed. It would be great to taste this with a shot of Evan Williams in it. Dark beer with a shot of Evan Williams in it just tastes awesome. The packaging is very nice with the gold foil top. Beautiful. I also really like the short chuby bottles, just a nice presentation / well done.

Presentation wise, the bottle has a very comfortable shape to hold, and it comes in a gold foil wrapper, so every beer feels like you’re unwrapping a gift. It’s a dark lager, so of course it tastes good. I wish it was a few dollars cheaper, but it’s a good beer to pick up once a blue moon.

One of the best beers for Mexican and New Mexican food. Every time I drink this I am whisked back to Albuquerque in the 90s, eating green chile enchiladas at El Patio. Que rico.
